Parents, teens, advocates and providers all share their horror stories about the lack of a system for children’s mental health care. While the documentary focuses on Connecticut, this is a national crisis: kids spending night after night in the emergency room because of the lack of psychiatric beds in the state; waits of up to six months to get an appointment with a psychologist because of escalating demand; families dealing with managed care companies that continually deny coverage for necessary treatment. All of this – combined with the raw emotion of accepting the fact that their child is mentally ill and will likely face a lifetime of medication and therapy.http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/darkest_hours
